Do you know the Tail of the Dragon? A stretch of road that connects North Carolina to Tennessee south of the Great Smokey Mountains National Park, with 318 curves in 11 miles and no driveways or intersections. But those of you who prefer the dirt roads over asphalt, might be excited to learn about (or already know about it), the Gravel Dragon. It's a trail close to Tail of the Dragon and Rev’It invites you to ride with them on it, this weekend, October 2nd, 2014.
